Hello! I’m Marlee, the blogger behind the Scenturion. I review perfumes that come from indie companies such as Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Arcana.  I might occasionally review indie makeup as well.

This blog is just for fun and I make no money off of it. All of the perfumes and cosmetics are purchased by me personally.

I’m fairly active in the reddit indie community as well. I can be found on the subreddit indiemakeupandmore under the username of hellaquin.

I’m 21 and a college student from the Sunshine State. I’m majoring in history and I hope to become a lawyer one day. In my spare time, I also enjoy baking, theatre, dance, singing, reading, and squealing over my dog, Rosco.

What’s Up with the Blog Name?

I make puns a lot and this is a blog predominantly about perfume. I wanted my blog name to reflect that, so I chose Scenturion. It’s a play on the word Centurion, which means an ancient Roman commander.
